Felt Owl

Hi there! still no cards to share with you as my stash is still out of bounds.  However, I did manage to retrieve my CB and balance it on a footstool to cut out the pieces of felt for this little owl.  I recently got the Marianne die set, COL1302, and the felt from a stand at the Stamp UK Cornwall show and convinced Jason to rummage in the loft for the bag of wadding .. .. ..

Now I am not the best stitcher in the world!  Many years ago I did quite a bit of embroidery but I seem to have lost the knack, so please don't look too closely.  I made up my little owl and gave it to DH to hang from his rear view mirror .. .. keeping an eye on him perhaps!

The Marianne Design Divas challenge is to use your Marianne dies, and I hope to join in again with a card before the challenge ends.  In addition to the Marianne Collectable Owl die set I've added a little piece of blue lace also by Marianne. Having seen the pretty bird and butterfly die sets I'm going to have to get them too .. .. maybe with practice my stitching will improve!

We are on the final push to get the painting finished in Mum's room so the carpet fitter can do his job on Monday - I have skirtings to undercoat today ready for gloss painting tomorrow .. .. not my favourite job and with the sun shining in Cornwall, I'd much rather be in the garden.

  1. Aaah! This is so cute Annie! The sun is shining here too but as my son set up my new computer last night I have to stay in as well. Have a good day and good luck with the painting. Hugs Christine x

  2. This is soooo sweet Annie. I love it! I've got some felt and I want to make something with it but I can never find the time.

    It's lovely and sunny here today but I've got Messy Church this afternoon and I've been preparing lots of strips of paper for paper weaving this morning. Don't think the children will be impressed! As for me I'd rather be making the Origami frogs!!
